Five-year plans can seem a bit daunting to some. It's often hard to think about all of the things we hope to accomplish in our near future, and then figure out exactly how to get there. I know that, for me, it's particularly difficult to work towards achieving a goal if I can't visibly see the steps I need to take to reach it. And, of course, I love being able to check off those steps along the way ;) So, for the purpose of keeping your sanity while crushing your goals, I created a roadmap to help you along the way! This roadmap is broken down into 6-month segments, and assumes that one would like to reach 3 goals every 6 months. Under each goal, you write 3 action steps you must take in order to reach that goal. **You can obviously adapt the model to suit your specific needs as well if you have more goals you want to reach per 6 months or feel that you need more action steps per goal.**
Here's an easy example:
Goal #1 = Land a full-time job at a media firm
Pretty simple, right? And then you can check off the action steps and goals as you reach them! This will give you way to reflect back on your goals and how you're doing.
Don't get discouraged if your timeline needs a little tweaking along the way! Be firm about your goals, but flexible about your methods. Life happens, and sometimes unexpected curveballs can come flying our way and force us to adapt. I'm confident you can handle it all with grace and ease :)
Below is a pdf download of the roadmap from above. Please feel free to use it however your heart desires. You got this! Happy roadmapping, beauties.
